PRESS RELEASE 018
Minister Borrell Participates in the EU-League of Arab States Ministerial Meeting in Brussels
04/02/2019
​Minister Josep Borrell travelled to Brussels to participate in the Fifth Ministerial Meeting between the European Union (EU) and the League of Arab States, which convened Foreign Ministers of the Member States of the EU and the Arab states, as well as the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the Commission (HR/VP), Federica Mogherini, and the Secretary General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Ali Aboul Gheit.

The Minister’s participation was consistent with the Spanish commitment to the Euro-Arab dialogue. It was a unique opportunity to prepare the first summit of Heads of State and Government between the EU and the League of Arab States that will be held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

The Minister recalled that the meeting had represented 50 countries and more than 900 million inhabitants living in neighbouring regions that face common challenges such as migration, regional conflicts, terrorism or climate change. He called for cooperation and to end the corresponding stereotypes.

Finally, he called for supporting the role of the United Nations (UN) in regional conflicts and the UN heritage, including the parameters on the Middle East peace process. 

The Minister used this appointment to hold bilateral meetings with his counterparts from Egypt, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, with which he addressed both bilateral and regional issues, including prospects for peace in Yemen under the auspices of the UN.
